The Trap
by Tabitha King

Publisher:  Macmillan Publishing Company
Copyright:  1985

Book Club Edition

Olivia and Pat appear to be the perfect couple.  They are young, seemingly devoted, with two beautiful children and fulfilling careers -- she as a gifted artist, he as a promising screenwriter.  But now, Liv's marriage is coming apart, and she does not quite know why.  She has become a prisoner of her husband's ambitions and her wifely responsibilities.  She is being forced to choose between the only way of life she loves and feels secure in, and one that appears alien and threatening -- with a husband she no longer feels she knows.

To think, and to heal herself, she goes with her young son in the dead of winter to their family cottage in a now-deserted Maine summer community.  It is there, in the one place Liv has always felt safe, that brutality and cruelty come into her life.  Three young hoodlums, on a vicious treasure hunt through empty vacation houses, have discovered their ultimate prize -- and they have her trapped.  And Liv, horrifyingly alone, suddenly realizes that the evil in our society is never far beneath the surface, waiting to erupt.  To save her own life, and that of her son, she begins a desperate race against time to find within herself the strength, and the means, to thwart her tormentors and escape.

A searing novel of self-discovery and the courage of a woman violated, The Trap is Tabitha King's most powerful novel yet.
